Why would 1995 toyota hiace with 2rz motor with carby shuts down when hot.


what you should have in the electronic distributor is an ignition module with a coil outside wired to the distributor. The ignition module creates the pulses needed for the coil to generate extreme high voltage . If that coil is incorrect voltage for the system then it is most probably overheating and failing to work. There are to voltage coils that can be used . One is a straight 12 volt coil that starts and runs on 12 volts and the other is a start on 12 and runs on 7.5 volts with the run circuit going through a resistor or resistor wire . Check out which coil should be in your car and if correct (7.5) check the voltage to the coil with a multimeter and it be should read 7.5 volts when the ignition is in the run position

No spark


First does the rotor turn when cranking engine?? possible timing chain is out or stripped gear..are you sure it has no spark??did you verify this with a high output spark tester ? did you spray starting fluid in the tbi unit ?

I replaced the distributor, coil ignition module cam position sensor and still no spark in a 99 dodge avenger what could be the problem


Often, modules and sensors are not the problem, rather the wiring that connects them. Check wiring attached to each of the items mentioned to see if signals are being transmitted to and from them according to factory specs. (specs are often difficult to acquire) Also check fuses. Not so sure about the 99 Avenger but most vehicles to not determine spark timing soley from the cam shaft positioning sensor, rather the crank shaft positioning sensor. Also, the ignition coil on late model vehicles are nortorious for failing because of heat cracking the plastic housing.

We have a 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse 1.8 and we replaced the interior, dash, and instrument cluster. Everything was fine except the instrument panel would not light up. Connections were checked and a few were...


Found this wiring diagram. Voltage for the coil comes from ignition switch, the ignition power transistor/ignition module controls the ground for the coil. My info says you crank and cam position sensors are built into the distributor. Sorry, I know very little about a Mitsubishi, I can't help you diagnose.

Where is the ignition coil located on a 1998 chrysler cirrus lxi. I have changed my plugs and fuel filter and my car still won't stay started. So I need to know where the ignition coil is located on my...


The coil is built into the distributor, along with the cam sensor. When one of these wont start and it has fuel pressure, the first thing you need to check is the timing belt. You do this by aligning the timing marks on the crank and camshaft. If the cam timing is good then the number one failure item is the distributor. Like I said the coil, and cam sensor are built into the distributor and they are not sold separately. The next most common failure item is the crank sensor. It is located in the top of the bell housing. Most of the time one of these engines quits the distributor is the reason. Ebay is a great source for these, the price is much better than any where else I have found.

Van will not start I have fuel pressure and when cranking it builds oil pressure where do i go from here


Check for spark at the spark plugs. If no spark, remove distributor cap and inspect the inside of the cap and the rotor for obvious signs of wear or damage. Check for spark at the coil wire by removing the coil wire from the center of the distibutor cap, and, holding the end of it close to the engine block, have someone crank the engine. There should be a very strong spark. If there was spark at the coil but not at the plugs, replace the distributor cap and rotor. If there is no spark at the coil, you either have no power or ground at the coil, or the coil is bad. With the ignition ON, there should be 12v at the red wire for the ignition coil. if not, check the fuses. Check for the pulsing ground signal of the ignition coil at the other wire ( I think a white wire) using a test light clipped to battery + while the engine is being cranked. If there is no light, the problem is likely the ignition module or pick-up coil, which is located in the distributor. Make sure that the wiring and connections are in good shape for these items before condemning them.
Pick-up coil should have about 1500 ω of resistance.
Good Luck

Im not getting spark to my spark plugs


Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.

If the rotor does turn, then replace the coil.
